Carrot and Goat’s Milk Cheddar Soup

April 4, 2012

Last week it was ice cream, but this week it’s all about soup.  It might seem a bit incongruent, but it’s pretty representative of the weather we’ve been having these days in Chicago.  Somedays it’s nothing but blinding sunshine and I find myself practically skipping to work in a dresses and open toe shoes.  Other […]

Potato, Crab and Gorgonzola Soup

March 2, 2012

In the past couple of weeks I attended not one, but two soup exchange parties.  I went to my first one back in 2009, and then attended again last year, so it’s become my winter tradition.  The premise is you gather your friends together and everyone brings a favorite variety of soup.  The party is […]

Turkey Noodle Soup with Butternut Squash, Pancetta and Cider Broth

December 14, 2011

I don’t know if I’m alone in this, but I’m known for changing what I’m making for dinner once I’ve already started cooking.  As in, the butter’s melted, the pancetta is crisping in the pan and I’m onto something entirely different than where I originally started.  It seems like terrible evidence of my short attention […]

Meatless Monday: Creamy Pumpkin Soup with Goat Cheese and Chipotle

October 17, 2011

This weekend came with a heavy dose of nostalgia that followed me into the kitchen. It all started when I went to see Matt Nathanson in concert in Chicago on Saturday night.  (If you’re not familiar with him and like indie pop music and talented songwriting I couldn’t recommend him more highly.)  It was particularly […]

Southwestern Clam Chowder

April 6, 2011

I don’t know what the weather is like where you live, but we got a delightful warm spell here in Chicago over the weekend.  My iPhone weather app confirmed it, the weather was in the high 70’s!  It was wonderfully unexpected and you better believe that Oliver and I relished it. We made our first […]

Vietnamese-Inspired Pork Noodle Soup

March 22, 2011

Of things to know about me – I’m not good at being sick. My life is usually so busy that sick days don’t really fit into my schedule and even if they do, I’m the type that has a hard time resting for long. Sure I might sleep in or maybe even take an afternoon […]

Cauliflower, Potato, and Cheese Soup

February 11, 2011

As when making any resolution or goal it’s not uncommon, after a little while to find yourself bumping up against obstacles. You know, one moment it’s smooth sailing and the next you hit the kind of road block that makes you want to give up or revert to your old ways. It usually comes just […]

Maryland Crab, Shrimp, and Bacon Chowder

November 30, 2010

Don’t forget to enter my Chavrie Giveaway here. The contest is open for entries through 12 am Friday, December 3. Recently I had the opportunity to attend the wedding of one of my sorority sisters in coastal Maryland. Though the wedding was clearly all about her and her husband, for me it also couldn’t have […]

Split Pea Soup

November 10, 2010

Did you know this week is National Split Pea Soup Week? I had no idea until the US Dry Pea & Lentil Council offered to send me some split peas in order to make my own pot to celebrate.  The timing couldn’t have been better.  Nestled in my freezer was a ham hock I had […]
